Renishaw to Feature XM-600 Laser Measurement System at IMTS 2018
Using technology developed for the XM-60 multi-axis calibrator, the newly launched XM-600 offers enhanced capability to connect directly with Renishaws range of universal CMM controllers (UCC). This enables faster and easier error mapping, measuring all six degrees of freedom from a single set-up, in any orientation for linear axes.
West Dundee, IL - August 7, 2018 - Renishaw, a precision engineering and manufacturing technologies company, will feature the XM-600 laser measurement system at IMTS 2018 on September 10 - 15 in Chicago.
The XM-600 communicates easily with Renishaw UCC software during the calibration routine to quickly build a complete error map of the CMM. This functionality is supported by UCCsuite V5.4 and higher, enabling the map of a CMM within half a day.
Since it maintains the same compatibility with CARTO software as the XM-60, the XM-600 is the ideal calibration solution for any manufacturing facility that utilizes both machine tools and CMMs.
For further information on Renishaws XM-600 laser measurement system join us at IMTS in booth 135509.

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors
The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
